For future reference, in Unicode parlance, they call these ARABIC LETTER SUPERSCRIPT ALIF U+0670 and Arabic Hamza Above U+0654. They are not on the "Farsi Keyboard" that ships with Win2000 and WinXP however it is easy enough to map them to the keyboard manually in Word. If you get Farsiweb's experimental keyboard or Peter Hauer's Keyman keyboard (search the archives for both), you will find both characters conveniently located on the keyboard. The problem as always is the font. For web use, almost everyone is using the Tahoma font which contains both characters (as well as the Persian Yeh and the Persian Kaf). Unfortunately, neither character positions very nicely and you probably won't want to use them when you see what they look like in action! If for non-web use, well, there are many Persian fonts around hacked for computer use without the original designer's permission (becoming a hot topic nowadays!) and you can usually find the heh+hamzeh hacked to the tah marbuta and as for the alif, I recommend a fine-tipped felt pen or Photoshop! There are various other ingenious workarounds, of course. I don't know what the situation is with Macs where the main problem seems to stem from not enough users doing Persian in order to provide feedback and mutual support. -Connie _______________________________________________ FarsiWeb mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/farsiweb
